Week-End Update

Great weekend.  Things at work are beginning to pick up.  My boss asked if I wanted to attend the African American Ball Saturday night.  I said "sure!".  I went with Ted, one of my co-workers.  We also had Jason go with us, an ex-coworker who is now with the University of Kentucky Athletic Dept.(Joe could not go, we have his 9 year old daughter every week end, too short notice to find a "Babysitter")  Plus three of Ted's neighbors. We had a blast.  This is one of the tremendous benefits of the company I work for...we are involved with most every big company in the area in one way or another.  Makes for some great perks.

We are going to start training for the big three running races in Louisville in about two weeks. Oh boy!

Also Joe and I received a piece of junk mail about cruises in Europe.  And we saw a travel show with Rick Steven about Italy.  Even more wierd is that I am reading "Under the Tuscan Sun".  I think it all means the trip next year is Europe! 

Only have two more stories about the Bahama trip and then it is finished.

As a Chinese poet said (and I paraphrase), to recreate something  in words is like being alive twice. 

I  understand that sentiment.

Can't wait for our cruise to get here.....we saw the movie "under the Tuscan sun" and it was great! It made me want to put it on my MUST SEE list. I hope you get to go. I think after this one we are thinking of Panama Cannel cruise. Hugs, Lanny

It sounds like you work for a very good company. It's great to get involved with various events. Wish mine were like that. I really like the quote. I have a collection of favorite quotes; I hope you don't mind if I add this one to it, even if it is a paraphrase.
